Editorial Reviews


"L.M. Findlay's excellent translation of The Communist Manifesto, embedded in a splendid introduction and a most carefully chosen appendix of Marx and Engels pieces, superbly places this nineteenth-century classic in an extraordinary historical context. There is no other edition at the moment that can match its quality in terms of translation, and its substance in terms of historical context." (Renate Holub, Director, Interdisciplinary Studies)

"Findlay engages the reader by depicting how personal and historical events shaped the thinking of Marx and Engels. At the same time, he clarifies why Marx and Engels pursue the manifesto format, explains its historical significance as a political genre, and highlights the importance of Marxist concerns in the post-industrial, post-Cold War era. Combined with the excellent array of appendices, Findlay's translation should enrich readers' understanding of the Manifesto's historical context and help solidify their understanding of the fundamentals of Marxism." (Bryon Moraski)

"Findlay's new edition of The Communist Manifesto is very scholarly, and the additional documents are a real bonus, providing an interesting context for the work. All in all, this is an excellent edition." (Walter Adamson)

"A great teaching text." (James Tully) --Online

About the Author

Karl Heinrich Marx, (5 May 1818 14 March 1883) was a Prussian-German philosopher and revolutionary socialist. His ideas played a significant role in the establishment of the social sciences and the development of the socialist movement. Marx's work in economics laid the basis for our understanding of labor and its relation to capital, and has influenced much of subsequent economic thought. He published numerous books during his lifetime, the most notable being The Communist Manifesto (1848) and Capital (1867 1894).

5.0 out of 5 stars Enlightening June 21, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I must admit I'd never read this book. But now it is easy to understand why communism had to fail. A philosophy based mostly on rage and confused thinking. So I loved it because with a few hours of redaing, it provided me with brilliant hindsight. If you still have doubts about the feasibility of communism, read this book.

You have to know your enemy. That is why I am reading this book. History tends to repeat itself, don't you think?

5.0 out of 5 stars Socialism renamed! August 3, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
In 1845, European Socialists held a convention in London, England. The organizers hired a young man to monitor and write a narrative of the convention including all motions and position statement passed subject only to review and senior authorship by an older and better known German economist. The young man described the convention as an evolutionary process and titled his product "A Socialist Manifesto". The Senior author stressed Revolution, edited and retitled the manuscript "The Communist Manifesto". The young author was Friedrich Engels. The Senior author was Karl Marx. If you wish to understand the politics of today, this is a must read! A careful reading of this classic-if not read previously- will (probably) amaze you!

It's neat how something that was written so long ago still has the ability to clearly explain things that are still happening today.

5.0 out of 5 stars Required Reading February 13, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
If you are an American or Canadian you will need to read this book. It was written in the 1800's and it is the how-to for governments to take a perfectly good country and destroy it, (for the good of the people). This should be required reading in every school. Parents should have this book to teach their children.

5.0 out of 5 stars Interesting January 7, 2014
By Brandi
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
It is interesting to me how the U.S. fought so hard to stop these people from influencing the majority of the population just a few decades ago yet, when one stops and thinks for a moment, this is exactly where we, as a country, are headed. It definitely gives something on which to think. It truly is frightening.
